fileify-lm

Larry Maccherone's fork of the fileify module that is middleware for browserify to load non-js files. I forked it becuase the Lumenize package that Rally Software wanted to use needed to have no JavaScript lines over a certain length or it wouldn't pass the linter that Rally is using. You should use the standard fileify rather than this module unless you have the same problem.

methods

var express = require('express'); // or connect, whatevs
var app = express.createServer();
var fileify = require('fileify');

var bundle = browserify();
bundle.use(fileify);
app.use(bundle)

fileify(name, dir, opts)

Make the files in dir available through require(name).

require(name) will then return the files hashed by filename.

fileify will do a recursive traversal of dir and return all the files except for hidden ones unless you specify a callback for opts.extension.

Returns a middleware function with a '.end()' function to stop all the watches in watch mode.

opts can have:

  • watch - if true, update the fileified bundle when files change

  • extension - a filter function, regexp, string extension, or array of extensions to limit extensions to

If opts is not an object and not an array it will be interpreted as the extension.

example

simple/server.js

var express = require('express');
var app = express.createServer();

app.use(express.static(__dirname));
app.listen(8080);
console.log('Listening on 8080');

var browserify = require('browserify');
var bundle = browserify({
    require : { jquery : 'jquery-browserify' }
});
app.use(bundle);

var fileify = require('fileify');
bundle.use(fileify('files', __dirname + '/files'));
<html>
  <head>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/browserify.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
      var files = require('files')
      var $ = require('jquery');

      window.onload = function () {
        Object.keys(files).forEach(function (name) {
          var div = $('<div>').appendTo($('#files'));

          $('<div>')
            .text(name)
            .appendTo(div)
          ;
          $('<textarea>')
            .val(files[name])
            .appendTo(div)
          ;
        });
      };
    </script>
  </head>
  <body>
    <div id="files"></div>
